If you go to FILE | Save as... | File
 you get the following choices:

Mail Files
HTML Files
Text Files
All Files

What does "Mail Files" mean as to how it saves the E-Mail ?

As .eml which is effectively the same as mbox format (the format SM and many other Linux/Unix programs use for storing messages).

Does HTML Files save it as it would a web site ?

Almost, it doesn't save the images. :-/

If you choose Text Files, does it "drop" the photo files ?


What is "All files" about - just tries whatever it can ?

It determines the final file type from the extension you enter (.eml, .html, .txt) and uses .eml if you don't give one.



P.S.: You could have found all of the above by just trying yourself...
